Have you ever dreamt of flying high in the sky spreading your wings wide?? Have you wondered how it would feel to indulge in everything you like without being noticed?? Have you imagined a day that you can spend just the way you want without being answerable to anyone?? You, your aspirations, your thoughts, your mood, your likes – just YOU!
Well, I am sure a lot of us would have a “yes” to this. But does it really happen ever? Rare, I would say.
We play many characters in a single life – in family, in friend circle, in society, in office – everywhere. There is always a “role-tag” on us in every moment of our life. And these so many roles come with responsibilities, they tweak us the way the role demands and hence we tend to lose our originality.
Of course there are countless merits of this – we are humans after all and we are meant to be social! 🙂
However in this race of life, it sometimes feel like our freedom is lost somewhere. We adapt so much to situations that we get busy fulfilling duties, being the “ideal” person, speak what people want to hear, think what people expect from us. The list is endless..
Well, this is not a complaint. There is absolutely nothing wrong in this. I am very happy doing all that I do for my circle of people. I love adapting to them. I love my family, my friends and I can change to any extent for their happiness.
Still, I have got this lacuna of being just “ME”.
Somewhere deep in the heart are these questions wandering. Is “being myself” not a role as important as any other role in my life? Are there no responsibilities towards my own happiness? Are there no wishes that I want to fulfil just for myself?
How would it feel to explore the world outside my nutshell?
Am I really free??
Finding these answers is a journey by itself! 🙂
I am craving here to set free the butterfly inside me!

Thank you for your post. It’s good to know that I am not the only person asking myself these kinds of questions, and going through the same kind of inner quest towards authencity, right now. All of the best!
Thanks for visiting the blog.. 🙂
Freedom is never dear at any price. It is the breath of life.

Could only remember this after reading this post..
“These woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep.”
May we all get a chance to set our butterflies free. Sooner that too.
Hoping so.. 🙂
